This massive project to create huge biomes housing the plants of the world in a disused china clay pit at Bodelva Quarry, near St. Austell opened in March 2001. The Eden Project has become a major tourist attraction and the concept has gone from strength to strength. Eden welcomed over two million visitors in its first year and has exceeded 1.2 million visitors every year since then. Celebrating its 10th birthday in 2011, the site is constantly evolving and there is always something new to see.

Annually, in early May, Helston hosts the Furry Dance. On this day children from the local schools dance through the streets of Helston. Adults born in the parish, who have been invited, dance as well in one of three dances held over the day. The dwellings and shops of the town are festooned with bluebells, campion and whatever green foliage is available.
